[texts]ERIC ED303750: Description and Prediction of Age-Related Change in Everyday Task Performance. - ERIC
Traditionally, assessment of the cognitive competencies of older adults has focused on abstract laboratory tests, which have often seemed quite unlike the demands of tasks encountered in everyday activities. Consequently, external validity of these laboratory tasks has been questioned, and their utility for assessing real-world competence has been debated. This study examined age-related change in performance on a measure of everyday competence, the ETS Basic Skills Test, a 65-item multiple-choi...

Literature is an artistic expression which teaches human beings valuable lessons about life. Literature invites the reader to share decisions with the decisions of others--the characters seen in literature. Unlike science or philosophy or ethics, which make people say "I understand" and then "I see," literature, as an art, begins with the statement "I see" or "I feel" and then moves to "I understand." Classics like Albert Camus'"The Fall," Miguel de Cervantes'"Don Quixote," the children's book "...

As tenants survive into and beyond their 80s, housing sponsors must address the problems of growing numbers of frail tenants...

In this study the Offer Self Image Questionnaire (OSIQ) was administered to 84 16- to 18-year-old males and fem...

Thus, as a group, blacks have been written off as obsolete and useless. Most at risk for joining the underclass is the black male. Because of the way Western males are socialized to be strong and macho, and because of discrimination which does not allow black males to achieve the preferred male image, black men are dehumanized...
